Joy in June - Compassion Rose

There has been a spattering of rain today.  Just enough to give the plants a drink and freshen up the dusty paths.  The compassion rose reaches its peak in June.  A pretty flower with the added bonus of being scented too.  As I took this photo a cheeky green spider popped out from between the petals.  Another unexpected joy in June!

Such a beautiful rose (and cute spider... how nice it looks against the pink of the petals!). Too bad I can't smell it!

Yes, this is a beautiful rose and a lovely name too, mine first one is just opening. I also have on calle'Simply the Best' planted for my beloved Kitty and one called 'Remember' for dear old Fred.
I love the spider, it could only happen be chance couldn't it?

What a beautiful rose and a super photo, Simone. I can even cope with the spider which seems far less threatening with it being green:)

What a beautiful photo, Simone! I love the gorgeous pink rose, and the little green spider complements the colour perfectly :)

Captured in time
And willing to pose,
A pretty green bug,
On a pink rose.

Just caught up with your posts.
What a beautiful photo of the rose, not so sure about the creepy crawly though!
How wonderful to have a finished product from the vineyard, all those hours you put in, so satisfying to see a result.
I like the idea of the June in Joy, hope you find lots.
